Honor Magic 2 Official Images Surface
The Honor Magic 2 has been in quite a few leaks recently, as is the case with any smartphone these days. These leaks have given us a rough look at what the device looks like. Now, a few more images have surfaced, which are official images by the company itself. These images give us the first proper look at the device and some of its features.
The images show the Honor Magic 2, along with its box. They show two new colours, a gradient blue and a gradient pink. The design language and use of colours is very familiar as it has been seen on a few Honor devices before. The images also show us the box, which is black in colour with Gold text on it. We do not know if these are retail boxes or are just being used for the purpose of this photograph.
Moving on to the most interesting aspect, the device itself. The back of the device shows off a triple camera setup which is quite unique. Although the setup is vertically aligned, Honor has coupled two sensors with the LED flash. A bigger sensor, is housed slightly away from the other sensors and the flash. This sensor appears to be bigger and might be the primary sensor of the camera setup. The design is unique, and it is refreshing to see something which is different from the rest.
On the front, we can clearly see the bezel-less display with close to a 100% screen-to-body ratio. The sliding mechanism shows two front facing cameras and a sensor for the 3D Face Unlock technology which Honor would be using for this device. Due to the placement of the front facing cameras and the sensors in the slider, the Honor Magic 2 can achieve its almost bezel-less display. None of the images show a physical fingerprint scanner. This can mean either of two things. The Honor Magic 2 might be using an in-display fingerprint scanner or it might have not included a fingerprint scanner and will be totally dependant on the 3D Face Unlock technology for security.
Previous leaks suggest that the device has a 6.4 inch FHD+ display and is running on the Kirin 980 chipset. It has 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage along with a 3,400 mAH battery. The battery is supported by Huawei’s 40W fast charging technology. The device is said to run EMUI 9 based on Android 9 out of the box.
The launch of the device is set for 31 October where all the rumours and speculations about the device will be put to rest.
